Alternative to parent paths on Windows Server using Classic ASP?

I have some Classic ASP files that provide e-commerce functions to a number of websites hosted on the same server. They are basically reusable chunks of code, stored in one location rather than copying over and over again for each website, in case I need to make changes or add functionality to all the websites.

On our server, I include these files using parent paths.

We are migrating to a newer IIS server. Parent paths are turned off by default. I realize I can turn them on, but wondering if there is a better way to include my ASP scripts, rather than using parent paths. If parent paths are a security concern, what is the best way to insert code into a local website's scripts?

Thank you.
